LISTEN | President Ramaphosa has a dream
Here's a snapshot of reactions:
7 million young people must reconcile with the reality that they will never be employed for the coming 10 years. Cyril's plan is only catering 2 million jobs. On average, 200 thousand jobs a year. This is the government we chose. Sweet dreams everyone 😊❤️ #SONA2019— Naledi Chirwa (@NalediChirwa) June 20, 2019
I like a President Ramaphosa dream about South Africa. Visionary will take this country foward— firstname.lastname@example.org (@SmhlongoD) June 20, 2019
South Africans are paradoxical, one week screaming for a better tomorrow, comparing African infrastructure to 1st world nations. When their leaders set targets to achieve these goals they are immediately cynical, doubtful even laughing it off as doomed to fail#Ramaphosa— SnazZy (@A_Snazzy8) June 20, 2019
